School safety needs to be taken seriously, Parkland dad says after Uvalde

Nineteen children and two teachers were killed on May 24 in Uvalde, Texas. Last week, their families said goodbye to them at funeral homes and grave sites.

“The pain that they’re feeling now is a pain that never goes away. It doesn’t heal with time. It’s something that you just live with,” he said.

Pollack said, "I don't even bother with the politicians. I think it's the parents.

"Parents are responsible for sending your child to a safe school.
